Rolf Harris sentenced to 5 years and 9 months in jail
On Friday morning Rolf Harris tried to evade photographers by leaving his home by boat for his final trip to Southwark Crown Court. He didn’t succeed and also rightly failed to avoid jail.
Accompanied by his daughter but without his wife, Alwen Hughes, this disgraced entertainer cut an arrogant figure both as he arrived and as he was sentenced. As the judge sent him down he “showed no emotion” and was led away by two guards.
Harris will begin his jail term – which will last approximately 2 years and 4 months – in Wandsworth. We hope he gets a warm welcome in the prison showers. This vile monster deserves to die in the clink.
